Well first you'll be a Raw Recruit... you'll sample each regiment then choose which one you like best. The ranks have different titles in each, but have the same basic structure. and you can also join you division in challenges. for the most part it'll just be a title *shrugs*


Corki should be around soon enough to explain everything in detail... we wouldn't want to take his job from him... :wink:

Welcome to the band, and don't be so quick to decide on a regiment, you may learn that you will have more fun with a different one, namely the Archers :D !


Oh by the way, I'm Vorkia one of the 2 banner captains for the Archers, the best regimant by far ;). But untill you have been assigned a regiment, just have fun and enjoy the sights.

Hey! I'm Apollo, Captain-General of the Infantry. It's not uncommon to want to become a member of the Infantry regiment... everyone envies us in some way. Whether it be our amazing good looks, or just being able to hit people with swords, I don't know. Anyways, have a Guinfantry. It's the Infantry's own special brew.

Firstly, we use the word Regiment, not division! We used to, but voted for a change in wording!


Secondly, by joining the Band, as previously explained, you become a Raw Recruit, and spend time with each Regiment, doing various tasks and having fun, before finally deciding which Regiment is home. Listen to the propaganda each Regiment has, but the final decision is your's. There is no right or wrong answer.


Now for some more information...


*official spiel*


Welcome Thread7! An email explaining important information about the Band is currently sitting in your inbox! Take a read!


Basically, the Band of the Red Hand is the Travel and Music ORG at DM! By signing up for the Band, you have joined the successful Raw Recruit Scheme. By signing up for the off board site, you will be able to experience the whole process to the maximum! The new Executive Officer, F Horn of Valere, or I, will assign you to one of the three Regiments (Archers, Cavalry, Infantry) for a week, where you will be given various tasks to perform, hoping that you will get a picture of what time in each Regiment is like. After a week with each Regiment, you will be asked to pick your final choice of a Regiment.


While being a Raw Recruit, there is nothing stopping you from earning points like any other Band member. Points lead to promotion within the Band. Below is a list of possible ways to earn points:


- writing reviews on places to visit/holidays you have been on

- writing reviews on music albums and gigs

- replying to other people's reviews and asking questions

- composing Jak O' the Shadow verses

- getting articles published in our monthly newsletter, The Hornsounder

- monthly roll call in the Band's private boards at DM

- any DM project we may have (currently a Battle Project, so speak to Horn if interested)

- and much much more I cannot think of right now!


If you complete your time as a Raw Recruit within 3 to 4 weeks, you will get a special award (called the Raw Recruit Stripe) which you can add to your siggy as well!


While being a Raw Recruit, you get 4 free strikes. This enables you to break Band Law 4 times without being punished my the Redarms, the Band's own police force. If they see any Law breaking, they will either drag you up for a trial or give you a fun spot fine to do (usually 100 lines of something witty). Channeling is a major no-no in the Band. As is spilling Battle Brew, our beloved drink! Once you have used up your 4 strikes, or join the Band's ranks officially, you will face the full force of Band law like any other Bander does!


Of course, we are not all about working 24/7, as we do let our hair down now and then! We are famous for our bar brawls, which happen frequently! Expect one soon! We also like jokes, tales, funny pictures - things that will make us laugh!


We also have many games - at DM, which can be found in the stickies, and on the off board site as well! Also, take the lessons to learn our ORG Game, based on the luck of dice! You get the selected weapons of your division, and can fight anyone in the Band! It is currently being revised, but the ideas will all be the same!


If I have left anything out (which I expect I have!), do not hesitate to ask questions! Someone will be able to answer them for you!


One last thing...

Go to the board at the top called "New Recruits Post here", and you will find a thread to post in where you will be assigned your first Regiment by Horn. Then you spend a week there, before checking your assignment post to see where you are off to next.


I hope that helps!
